New York Lauren Rothman Post a comment

The Greenmarket these days is looking, well, a little gray. Yup, it's winter, and the local produce you can get now is what you'll be getting clean through March or April: apples and pears; squash and roots; onions and crucifers. Take a look at what you can expect for the months to come. More

The Tuesday edition of the Lane County Farmers' Market in Eugene, Oregon might be a tad smaller than the one we visited in Portland, but it's full of riches nonetheless. Freshly caught salmon, gorgeous tomatoes, greens of all kinds, grapes, and apples greeted us as we made our way around on a recent visit. Check out the slideshow for a peek at some Oregon produce (and other tasty farmers' market bites). More

Market Scene Lauren Sloss Post a comment

We're pretty spoiled when it comes to farmers markets in San Francisco. There is, of course, the Ferry Building—the arguable Big Daddy of all markets everywhere, but there are an amazing number of little market gems all over the city. Like the Grove Street Farmers Market, holding court between Divisadero and Broderick every Sunday. More

The Buford Highway Farmers Market is a 100,000 square-foot grocery megastore, about Costco-sized. If there was a Nobel Prize for markets, this would absolutely deserve to win. Take the eggplant aisle: Sicialian, Dominican, Indian, Thai, and other varieties all lined up next to each other, in various shades of the indigo continuum.

Though California is blessed with beautiful produce throughout the year, the crowd at the Santa Monica Farmers Market seemed especially excited with spring and summer offerings overlapping.

Market Scene: Ramps and Green Garlic at the Union Square Greenmarket

New York Ben Fishner 1 comment

An unseasonably warm March seems to have jumpstarted the local Greenmarkets, and over the last week we've seen that first polarizing sign of spring for farmer's market regulars: ramps. Not just a few, and not just enough for restaurant chefs to snatch up before regular shoppers arrive, but bushels and bushels of the sweet wild leeks.Click through the slideshow for a closer look at what we saw at the market last week.

Market Scene Meister 4 comments

When traveling through the rolling corn fields of Eastern Pennsylvania, it's hard to limit the number of stops one can make at this or that roadside farm stand. Thankfully, the Kutztown outpost of Renningers Antiques and Farmers Market kills several birds with one convenient, folksy stone. The market stalls are teeming with Pennsylvania Dutch classics like sauerkraut baked beans, shoo-fly pie, pretzels, horehound candy (who still eats horehound candy?!) and all manner of cured meats.

Market Scene: Early September at Ferry Plaza in San Francisco

Market Scene Jen Maiser 1 comment

There are so many reasons that I feel lucky to live in the Bay Area. This week, one of those reasons was that we still have well over a month to buy fresh, local tomatoes. This week I took advantage of that at Ferry Plaza. Check out snapshots from the market, including grapes, zucchini, fresh ramen, Dragon Tongue beans, and more. More

Market Scene: Bethany Beach, DE

Market Scene Jessica Leibowitz Post a comment

The Bethany Beach Farmer's Market—which closes for the season on Sunday, September 11th—packs a solid 15 growers into the PNC Bank parking lot just a block away from Bethany's main boardwalk. For a small market, they've done a nice job assembling a wide variety of vendors; you'll find everything from standard fare (corn, cheese, heirloom tomatoes) to the more exotic (mushrooms, honeycomb candles and cupcakes, handmade lavender soap).

Despite the late summer arrival of heat-wilted afternoons, the chill of the evening skies and whispering hints of autumn are signs that the farmers' markets in the Northwest are coming to a close. So to finish out my own season for Market Scene out in Washington state, what better way to bid farewell to summer than from my own backyard—welcome to Duvall, just northeast of Seattle.

Market Scene BostonZest 1 comment

Central Square in Cambridge has grown into an important food destination and the Central Square Farmers' Market gives lovers of fresh, local food another reason to visit the area. At the Kimball Fruit Farm stand, chef Steve Johnson had packed boxes with as much produce as he could carry back to his restaurant Rendezvous in Central Square. We also spotted chef Tony Maws shopping for Craigie on Main, around the corner from the market. Check out photos of the pumpkin blossoms, peaches, early pears, shell beans, and more beautiful produce. More

Serious Entertaining: Farmer's Market Lunch

Serious Entertaining Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

At this time of year, the farmer's market is in full swing. Suddenly it's such a pleasure to go grocery shopping that I'd do it twice a day, if possible. The result is a kitchen that's stockpiled with produce, far too much for me to tackle alone. What a perfect excuse to make lunch and share with friends what summer is all about. More
